Sony Carl Zeiss 135mm F1.8 ZA Sonnar T* A-mount lens review by Dopol
|Dopol#5435 date: May-22-2009|
flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|price paid:||779Euro (new)|
|positive:||Sharp, from F/1.8|
|negative:||SSM could make focus faster|
Some CA if you push it (but less then any other lens I own).
|comment:||I ran into this lens (new) for a great price, I couldn't resist. I had hoped to lay hands on the CZ85 1,4 but that was sold out. However, no regrets, whatsoever so far.|
The lens is heavy, I used it as a street lens in Hamburg and Amsterdam. Great shots, but lots of comments and tired neck.
Particularly like the great, great bokeh and sharpness
Oddly, the lens sometimes 'assumes' I had it focus-locked and so won't focus. Didn't find out why, doesn't bother me much.
